Vaginal repair surgery is also known as anterior vaginal wall repair surgery. This surgical procedure is useful to tighten the front (anterior) wall of the vagina. Tightening the muscles and soft tissues help the bladder or urethra stay in its proper position.
Anterior vaginal wall repair or vaginal repair surgery is useful to correct a condition called vaginal prolapse (slip out of place). In the case of vaginal prolapse, the bladder or urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body) slips down into the vagina.
